A comprehensive social and emotional learning program

Secondary School Overview

Secondary School Overview

Bringing together the best in practical and positive psychology, and effective teaching and learning processes.

A whole school approach where;
Students are taught the skills and mindsets to thrive in the 21st century…(emotional intelligence, resilience, self esteem and problem solving skills.) You intentionally create a happy and mentally healthy environment for learning.

Teachers, students and parents are supported, and work together. Happier students are engaged and achieving at optimal levels. Everyone is empowered to take responsibility and be accountable for themselves.

You use a simple framework containing fun and colourful resources. Problem behaviours are greatly reduced and students learn to get what they need in more effective ways.

A developmental and integrated program is used across all year levels and complies with Australian SEL curriculum requirements.
